I gather that's the proposal at hand. The StarlingX development team
would do the work to write specs for these feature additions,
propose them through the usual processes, then start extracting the
relevant parts of their "technical debt" corresponding to any specs
which get approved and propose patches to those services for review.
If they don't, then I agree this will go nowhere.
